Surfs UP!

Friday 18th December We started off our surfing lessons in the backyard, practicing the stance on our towels. Then the girls headed down to the beach to try it for real, while the boys explored the markets, as they hadn’t had a chance to do so yet.   The waves were just right for beginners,…



We got THE POWER!!!

The power went out yesterday evening so we couldn’t post a blog, so we’ll catch up now! We had a full work day yesterday, starting with gathering lots of supplies for the project at the school. We had to get lots of pipes and all the right plumbing fittings. Once we were at the school…

African love you guys!

We left Ponta with a winner of a day yesterday. We got up a little later and all rolled out of bed at about 8. We only had a small amount of work to finish up, so a half-day with a sleep in was much needed. They have worked so hard this week; they definitely…

After we had all stuffed our faces with delicious banana hotdogs, we all…



What are your koalafications?

Those alarms were a leetle early for us this morning. Having rested a lot yesterday, however, we were ready. We only needed a small amount coffee to wake us up. 😉 Breakfast was a laugh this morning. I don’t know what all got into us, but the giggles from dinner seemed to have continued to…



Life is not a beach

Free day!! Because we have done so much this week, we all decided to have a little free day where we got to do whatever our hearts desired. We got a bit of a sleep in and woke up for breakfast at a lovely 9am. All of us were so cheery and awake, and we…



King Lou and the Organic Crew
